Sleep Habits


Dear Sleep, I know I hated naps when I was young, but I miss you now. When you were young, you were forced to take a nap in kindergarten or at your babysitter’s house.  Now it seems teens can’t go a day without a nap. No matter if you’re constantly falling asleep in class or taking a long nap after school each day or if you are looking to have more energy and not nap so often, then this is the article for you. To feel more energized throughout the day, you can take a walk, stretch, drink some tea, or even listen to your favorite hits. One way to stop feeling super drowsy after waking up is by not hitting the snooze button. Wake up the first time you hear the alarm sound.

Doctors will tell you that sleep isn’t a luxury. A high school student taking three AP classes will tell you otherwise. The bottom line is, taking naps in the middle of the day just isn’t an option for high school students. You may be tired in the morning no matter how much sleep you got the night before.  If you don’t get a lot of sleep for a couple nights in a row, you’ll feel more run down throughout the day and be more likely to have a hard time focusing in class or even fall asleep. Eight hours every night really would be beneficial, but that’s simply not possible with many people’s busy schedules. The main idea is to try to get as much sleep as you can each night!
